He looks like a demon, fights like a rogue, believes like a cleric, charms like a bard, and crusades like a paladin.
As we enter December and approach Christmas, a holiday with holy significance for me, I figured this was a good time to talk about one of my favourite comic characters.
A jolly, jovial fellow who cracks a good joke. An agile wall-crawler who performs daring feats of acrobatics to baffle opponents larger and tougher than he is. Yet for all that, a hero with a strong sense of decency and morals.
WHO APPEARS IN A BURST OF RUSHING AIR AND BRIMSTONE FROM AN UNEARTHLY DIMENSION, DARK AS MIDNIGHT AND EYES AGLOW LIKE THE MOON!
And if you think I made a mistake describing Spider-Man, YOU’RE WRONG. FOR I WASN’T DESCRIBING SPIDER-MAN.
For he is Nightcrawler. And he is the true BAMF.
A Bad Ass Mother…Friend. Because flirting aside, he’s the Fun Guy Mum Friend to contrast with Colossus being the Good Boy Mum Friend.
“I have…questions…about the gods.”
“Don’t we all.”
Welcome to this month’s story!
So for the past month or so, I’ve been playing in an online D&D group with a friend, finally fulfilling my dream of being a paladin. With that in mind, this month’s story will be based on that. Made more for the players of the game, but hopefully it’ll be good enough for anybody who happens across this!
So, what, pray tell, is the image I am using to frame my character’s story? What IS my character’s story?
It’s that time of the month! So take a break from whatever politics, how-tos, motivationals, and whatever posts you normally read on the weekend, and stay awhile for a Final Week Fable, where I take a pic I found and write something about it!
And what is THIS week’s piece going to be based on?
Ah yes. Hello, gryphon, my old friend. My favourite of the fantasy creatures.
